At Sea, Bound for Ushuaia, Argentina

Dec 06, 2017 - National Geographic Explorer


A day at sea, Drake Passage, headed north. For some it was a time to catch up—on sleep, editing photos, reading, or just reflecting on the previous days. For others the day was well spent on tasks needed to be done such as paper work for the assistant expedition leader or the final editing of the expedition video.

About the Author

Eric Pohlman

Naturalist

Having grown up in the wilds of Northern Minnesota, Eric’s lifelong love of nature and a desire to explore was a forgone conclusion. His childhood summers were spent canoeing the lakes of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and his winters were spent exploring those frozen lakes on skis. It was no surprise when he decided to spend his summers working in Alaska’s fishing industry on a four-person commercial salmon fishing boat in Prince William Sound while attending the University of Minnesota. He did take a break to study abroad for a year in Helsinki, Finland.
